Legal Age To Buy Tobacco Changes Today

(UNDATED) – Beginning today Hoosiers under the age of 21 can no longer legally buy smoking or vaping products under state law.

The law also focuses on harsher penalties for retail establishments that sells or distributes tobacco, e-liquids, or an electronic cigarettes to a person less than 21 years of age.

The measure also doubles the fines for retailers who sell to underage buyers, with penalties up to $2,000 if they’re caught doing it three or more times in one year. And it requires sellers to card anyone who looks younger than 27.
